Things to do
With two of the USA’s finest national parks – Grand Teton and Yellowstone – on its doorstep, Jackson makes the perfect base for getting out in the fresh air. Trek through awe-inspiring landscapes of pristine forests, lakes and snow-capped mountains. Or book a guided tour for the chance to spot local wildlife – if you’re lucky, you may even see bears and eagles.
Jackson is a hotspot for outdoor sports and activities. Head for the mountain heights and strap on your skis, take to the water on a white water rafting trip, or explore the countryside on horseback. For something a little more relaxed, tour the lakes and rivers by canoe, or spend a peaceful afternoon fishing.
Besides the astounding natural beauty surrounding the town, Jackson offers a variety of cultural attractions. Delve into the impressive collection of art, photography and sculpture at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Or catch a play or concert at the Center for the Arts, which attracts many big name performers.
